Labour responds to ‘insulting’ real terms pay cut for police officers

Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to the Government’s announcement of a real terms pay cut for police officers, said:


“This is a blow for police officers who have served the country so bravely throughout the pandemic. Not only have they been at risk of Covid, but in the past year attacks on officers have rocketed. In response, they should have a Government that has their back.


“One day Ministers are clapping frontline workers and praising them in Parliament – the next pushing through an insulting real terms pay cut – utterly shameful hypocrisy yet again, especially from Priti Patel.”
